We enjoyed a memorable evening celebrating Valentines Day. Omar, our waiter, was excellent, and the meal was amazing.

The service was bad...towards the end of the night after asking twice and waiting for over 15 minutes I gave up and went to the front to ask the hostess for help to find our waiter and get the bill.

Top notch experience, went upstairs, seated by a double fireplace, small room, felt like a British Tavern. Very attentive staff, 3 people for that small area. Great menu selections, great wine, and a Valentine's special for two that made it a bit more affordable. This is a special occasions splurge meal, but if you like Lawry's and don't want to make the drive this is your place. Prime rib and cream corn done right.

Food was outstanding. The valet parking is a shakedown. One downside was next table had a companion dog. Its shampoo or whatever the owner put on it was overpowering.

First time here after hearing about it for decades! Pleasantly surprised by quality of food. Seriously the best Prime Rib ever and great/fun service! It is an old-fashioned/Traditional Tavern ambiance which is great.

The requested seating was not available, it was a birthday celebration and was ignored! Excellent wait staff, was busy, but the steak and prime rib were almost too cool

We have been going to Five Crowns for 35 years now for birthdays, retirement, etc. We love the coziness of it. We do miss the free appetizers they used to serve in the other dining area that is now another diner.

Were seated at our allotted time after having a drink in the very crowded bar. Very good bread selection and nice touch of butter in one dish and salt in another to salt your butter. Wedge salad was very good while wife's kale Caesar was quickly not as tasty and prefer traditional Caesar. 24 oz. ribeye was cooked perfectly medium and creamed spinach and Yorkshire pudding were just as good. Very good meal and service.

Celebrated 3 anniversaries with 2 other couples. We all enjoyed the round table in the atrium area. It was relaxing. Daniel was an amazing server. 5 people had the prime rib and said it was delicious. I had the Mediterranean Sea bass which was amazing. We all appreciated our special occasion dessert too. We have not been to 5 Crowns in many years. We will be back much sooner next time. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Not inexpensive, but the Five Crowns is usually five star. It's a classy restaurant with delicious prime rib dinners complete with all the traditional British fixings. We were looking forward to a quiet Sunday night, but there was a large crowd for the early bird dinner plus a wedding reception with dancing and noisy guests. As the night went on things quieted down, so all was well. The food was excellent and the waitstaff professional. We'll be back.

Went for my 7 year anniversary with my boyfriend. Every time I’ve been to Five Crowns it’s been a good experience. Amazing food and drinks, servers and other staff who are sweet and sincere, and some great decor. And since it was our anniversary they gave us both a complimentary glass of champagne and dessert, I honestly didn’t see that coming! Thanks for helping our night extra special.

Extremely disappointed after building expectations based on reputation. We were placed in a cold room upstairs ,apparently due to overflow, with another unlucky party who had the same comments as us. The wait staff was disjointed and extremely slow - it took 2 hours to get through a dinner for three, and much of the time we were without anything on the table and no sign of wait staff for 15 minutes at a time. They ran out of butternut squash soup (our reservation was for 7:45 - not that late) and substituted lobster bisque - I should have gone for the salad. The spinach tasted odd; mashed potatoes were cool and tasted like they were out of a box, and the one of the California prime rib dinners we received was very fatty. I would have been disappointed with the service and the meal at a mid-level restaurant; for the prices Five Crowns charges, this was basically robbery. All in my party agreed we would not return. Thanks for the opportunity to comment. I hope others have better luck. This is a landmark restaurant and it needs to drastically improve to remain so.
